and close acquaintances. you want to claim that anonymously. >> you mean anonymously as far as publicly. other states will not let you publicly claimant without your name? >> right. there are 44 states that play the powerball in the country. out of the 44, 38 states you have to state your name and that people know who won. if they have a press conference and you get the big check, like this customer here on tv, you can hide your face behind a but you will still have to go up there and let them know who you are. >> so many eyes will be on this personnel. you feel like there is a way they can find you. probably good to have a financial advisor of some sort. >> definitely. that is the second thing they should do they should create a financial team and really assemble. they will be the coach, and the financial team will be the players. they want an attorney, definitely an accountant and also an investment advisor to navigate them through those waters of their new wealth. >> and of course they will be able to afford all of those things. what are your thoughts on
>> the lump sum is reduced, of course, the $1.5 billion, you get about a 25% haircut on the money. but $1.5 billion, if you want all that money you are going to want to opt for the 29 annual payments. that is the good markup on the lottery. that is the only way you'll get the 1.5 billion and then you will pay your taxes on that. >> if you do not win, and someone else does, what do you hope that winner does with that >> first, i hope they listen to that financial team so that they can advise them with that newfound wealth. but secondly, i really hope that they figure out who they want to give to, and manage it properly. they want to definitely pay off their debts, to reduce the interest that they will pay in the future. and really decide what they are going to do with the money for their friends and family. >> why do you stress remaining
>> because that amount of money is going to change anyone's life and the people around them as well. you want to be able to navigate that, and control the amount of people that know you have that amount of money. i know that we often see in the news, the young lady who won the lottery in north carolina, she is constantly in the news. she is a public story, very often now. you want to be able to control the amount of attention that you get. >> thank you so much. now, we are going to send it over to meteorologist, efran afante for a check of our weather. savanna, it is going to be chilly if you are heading out right now. get your powerball tickets because right now all of our temperatures are at or below freezing. the only warm spot right now that is above 38 degrees in aiken. a little bit less cloud coverage as we get into bishopville at 34 degrees. sumter 34, winnsboro 32, as well as in lexington.
